SHARE AND SHARE ALIKE? In N.Y., Josh Kosman reports the Dodgers have to “fork over” $1.9B in revenue-sharing payments to MLB “over the 25-year term of its media rights deal with Time Warner Cable -- 63 percent more than it had expected.” Dodgers Owner Guggenheim Baseball Management “expected to pay” $1.19B in revenue-sharing payments for the TWC deal involving the team’s RSN, SportsNet LA. The $1.9B in payments -- $41M in ’14, $48M in ’15 and 4% annual increases after -- “will leave the owners about $710 million lighter” (N.Y. POST, 3/7).
THE LANGUAGE OF DOLPHINS: In Ft. Lauderdale, Dave Hyde writes under the header, "Dolphins Owner Steve Ross Needs To Get More Involved." The Dolphins "need to open up avenues of communication inside the organization." Ross could help do so if he "got to know the people inside his team." Hyde: "Start with the trainers and weight-room people who spend more time with the players than anyone. Build trust and relationships inside the walls" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 3/7).
